Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. About 40 percent of the population lives in poverty. The situation is particularly difficult for young people: their lives are marked by violence and a lack of prospects.

Together with our partner organisations, we support youth organisations and youth networks in actively participating in municipal development processes. We offer further training and strengthen the rights of young people.

Youth work for the creation of perspectives for staying in the country

Migration from Nicaragua has increased sharply as a result of the domestic political crisis since April 2018. Our partner organization CANTERA is committed to secure and enlightened migration. In addition, it points out perspectives for staying in Nicaragua by working out life plans for young people and young adults with psychologists and showing them future perspectives through income-generating measures.
